Lexi's POV

**BEEP BEEP BEEP** The alarm went off and I laid in bed staring at the ceiling.

It was almost my birthday, and I couldn't wait. I would finally be 18. Where did the years go? I remember when I first went into 9th grade. Damn, that seems like yesterday. I don't understand how time can fly so fast.

I looked over and saw Demi slowly starting to open her eyes, and smiled.

But I guess these past few months have gone by so fast because I have been able to spend them with my love. Eventually, I hope to marry her. It doesn't matter how much people think it's "disgusting" or "abnormal" for same-sex marriage, I love her, and I know she loves me. Who knows, maybe all people will accept it by the time we're ready.

I chuckled at the thought.

As if everyone would ever accept it. Maybe a small handful.

"Babe! Lexi! Get up! We're gonna be late!" Demi has straddling me. Oh crap, I must've dozed back off. She leaned in and kissed me before dragging me out of the bed. "Come on baby, you can do it! It's only a few more days until your birthday!! Get up, and come down stairs. And hurry! You have 10 minutes or I'm coming back in!"

"Now babe, that's an offer I might have to take you up on." I smiled and she hit me with a pillow.

"Ten Minutes!" She walked out and I couldn't help but stare at her butt. She was wearing skinny jeans and I must admit, she looked so beautiful, but when doesn't she? I went to her closet and found a pair of her leggings and one of her hoodies. I put on my converse, tossed my hair into a ponytail, and went downstairs. "Don't you have your own clothes?" She chuckled and I bit my lip.

"I do, but why wear mine? When I can wear my baby's clothes and feel her touch all day? You know, it is way too tempting to smack every single guy in that choir when they whistle and call you hot." I gave her a pouty look.

"Awwh, is my girlfriend getting jealous?" She giggled and kissed me. "Although, I must admit, you look pretty cute in my clothes." She leaned in and whispered, "Don't forget, you turn 18 soon." She kissed my cheek and we went to the car. She threw a granola bar at me, "Eat." She said it sternfully as if she knew I was going to deny it. 

"I'm not hungry right now" She shot me a 'listen up' look. "Dems.... Really..." She got out of the car and I watched her walk into the house. Five minutes later she came back out. She had a red notebook in her hands. Crap. I know what that is. She got back in the car. "Wh... Why.. Why do you have that?" I tried to grab it from her hands, but she pulled it back.

"Lexi... Babe... I know you haven't been eating properly.. I watch you at dinner, and I found this." I was starting to get aggravated. So now she's going through my personal stuff?! "Look... I saw this in our room, and it was red, so I thought it was mine. I opened it to see what it was, and I found what you wrote. Lex... You have no reason to be ashamed of your body, and I would never leave you because of how you look. Hell, I'd never leave you anyway." I felt a tear roll down my cheek. She had to read that page. Ugh. Why did I leave it out? Why did I write it down at all? She tried to grab my hand, but I pulled it away. She set the book down and started to drive. I stared out the window the whole way to the school. We got to the school, and before getting out, I looked at Demi.

"D... Demi... I'm sorry... I know you'd never leave me... I just don't understand how someone like you could want.. me?" She leaned in and kissed me.

"Lexi. Listen to me. I love you for you. It doesn't matter how you look. And for the record, you're so beautiful. And what you wrote in that book, none of it is true. I promise. I will never leave you. I want you to promise me something..." She grabbed my hands, and I let her this time. I felt a tear roll down my cheek.. Again.. "I want you to promise that whenever you feel insecure, or feel unhappy with yourself, I want you to come to me. I want to be there for you, but you have to be willing for it. Okay? I love you so much, and even if I hadn't found you at my concert last summer, I know I would've found you eventually. YOU, Lexi, are the true love of my life. Forever and always." She kissed me again.

"I promise Demi... I love you so much." I hugged her, but it didn't last for long. "I should probably go. You need to get to the choir room." I have to get out of the car five minutes before her so nobody will suspect anything. I hate having to stay hush hush about our relationship, but it'll be worth it in the end. I can feel it. We're meant to be. I got out of the car and walked into school. The other girls instantly starting taunting me, but I tuned them out and kept walking. I kept repeating Demi's voice in my head, "You're beautiful".. God, I love her.
